Located on the 100 block of Pender Street in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown, Blim’s storefront windows are a siren call for all who are young at heart. In front of a large print of the entire cast of The Simpsons is a cacophony of animal prints, cartoon artwork and furry animals adorning umbrellas, fanny packs, tote bags and leggings. It’s a funhouse of nostalgia and the surreal. Since 2003, Blim has been a well-kept secret that attracts a devoted and adventurous crowd from the fashion set, as well as curious window shoppers.

The front half of the space is a continuation of zany, colourful and bold fashions, accessories of gifts featured in the front window; the back half is a studio and workshop/event space where artists and anyone with a creative bone can create art or arts and crafts, including T-shirts, buttons or moccasins.

Vancouver craft stores for do-it-yourself presents

Chinatown’s colourful Blim Arts Society stocks imported Japanese fashion and clothes designed by owner Yurika Iga. If you want to take the do-it-yourself approach when it comes to gift giving, head to the back of the shop to discover the in-store screen-printing studio. Take a class and create printed totes, tees and towels. If you’re already a pro, book some studio time to use the facilities and paints for the afternoon.
